The Lyric Thermostat: Home Comfort and Energy Savings in a Smart Thermostat Published on February 18, 2016 Your smartphone is your lifeline. It links to your fitness tracker and sends notifications to get up and walk or consume more agua. It took the place of baby monitors and shows you a live feed of your sleeping angel, as well as their heart rate and oxygen levels. It unites you with the outside world through social media, as well as calling and texting. It’s where people get their news, where they check-in for their flights, and how they pay for their morning Starbucks. And now it controls your home. The Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Thermostat adapts to your life to control your furnace and air conditioning system so that you don’t have to. But you can, if you choose, using – you know it – your smartphone. You can use your smartphone to adjust your Lyric Thermostat no matter where you are, and the Lyric also integrates with Apple Watch, Apple HomeKit, and Samsung SmartThings. But over time, the Lyric will learn your family’s behaviors – when you turn the air up, when you turn it down, when you are at the house, and when you leave. It has the ability to use geofencing so your Lyric can really see where you are and, once it learns how long it takes your heater to heat the home or your A/C system to cool it, it will determine when you are that length of time away from the house and automatically start adjusting your heating and cooling systems so that it is the ideal temperature when you arrive. It even warns you when the air filter needs to be changed! All of these features don’t just save you peace of mind and time, they save you cash. Because the Lyric Thermostat learns all your HVAC system’s behaviors, it optimizes your heating and cooling systems to save on energy bills. When it understands that during the cold months you’re going to be gone from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Lyric will automatically adjust your furnace temperature lower and then, when it sees you’ll be home in an hour, it starts turning the temperature back up to prepare for your return home. Does it only take your HVAC unit 35 minutes to get your home to a comfortable temperature? No problem! The Lyric knows that, as well, and will hold off until 5:25 p.m. to start turning the heating system back on but it provides the same result – home comfort with energy savings.
